NEW ORLEANS - A 25-year-old Metairie woman has been arrested and accused her of teaching a minor how to be a Bourbon Street prostitute.

The Times-Picayune reports Emilie "Bunny" Cook was booked at the New Orleans jail on a charge of trafficking of children for sex purposes.

State Police say Cook arranged prostitution work for herself and a 16-year-old girl in November in the 300 block of Bourbon, a tourist-heavy area of the French Quarter.

Investigators said Cook negotiated a sex deal for herself and the minor with an undercover New Orleans police officer. The officer agreed to pay the women $500, investigators said.

The minor told police she had run away from home in Jackson, Miss.

It was unclear whether Cook has an attorney.
